Popular Honda Vehicle Recalled for Fire Risk Caused by Car Washes

February 18, 2019Feb 18, 2019

A popular Honda vehicle has just been recalled. Officials revealed it may be at risk of catching on far due to a really strange reason!

According to reports, Honda is recalling some of their most popular models: Ridgelines. They say the recall is affecting over 106,000 vehicles. The impacted years are the 2017-2019 models.

"The issue stems from the Ridgeline's fuel pump feed port, which can be corroded over time by the kinds of acids found in some car wash soaps, leading to cracks that may allow gas to leak out," reported Fox News.

At this time, Honda is asking all owners to not wash their cars if they drive one of these Ridgelines. They are beginning the recall next month and owners are being encouraged to bring their trucks into an authorized Honda dealer for the needed repairs.

"Honda is also recalling approximate 437,000 vehicles across several other model lines for an unrelated fuel pump issue caused by sodium particulates in gasoline sticking to internal components that could lead to stalling. The action covers model-year 2016-2018 Acura MDX, 2015-2019 Acura TLX V6s, and 2015-2017 Honda Accord V6s," according to Fox.

Please help us by spreading the word about this news. Make sure all of your family and friends know about this recall if they drive a Ridgeline that was made in 2017, 2018, or 2019. This could potentially save their life!
